Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Syll 452.4 (c. B.C. 240, Epidaurus, in dialect) κατὰ τὸν αἶνον τὸν τῶν Ἀ [χαι ]ῶν is explained by Dittenberger as a ";decree"; of the Achaean Council. He compares ib. 306.20 (ii/B.C.) μήτε κατὰ ψάφισμα μήτε κατ᾽ αἶνον, the former being a decree of the people, the latter of the Senate (Delphi); and he cites Hesychius αἶνος · γνώμη, παροιμία, παράδειγμα, ἔπαινος · καὶ ἡ χειροτονία καὶ ψήφισμα.
